Canon DSLR does not loop images during polar adjustment procedure was created by Viktste

Hi.

Tried my new Stellarmate OS for the first time under clear skies yesterday. When I was (trying to) perform a polar adjustment using EKOS it took and resolved 3 images as expected and produced the image with a pink correction vector where you are supposed to adjust a star into the bulls-eye using the knobs on the mount. However my camera (a Canon 550D mounted on a SW200P on a HEQ5PRO) then does not loop images as it should, so I cannot see the effect of adjusting mount knobs. The camera works as expected under the image section of EKOS.

Any Ideas?

Looks like this was reported before.. I will test tonight with 600D and try to find out the cause for this.

I had the same problem in the Fokus module.
I was able to fix it by going to the Indi control panel, got to the DSLR tab (I use an EOS450D).
Then find the capturesettings tab and switch the focusmode to MANUAL.
I am not sure if there were other (autofocus related) settings I changed but it works now. Maybe you can try playing around with those.

Good luck!

Yes. I reported this for ASI120 CCD. Same story.
I think it worked in 2.9.8 (I was using DSLR back then).
Now I am on 3.1

Thanks for the suggestion. I will try that next time we have clear skies.

I got a bit lost getting it to refresh and made the following note:
Click on a nearby prominent star to act as a guide for the movable end of the correction vector.
To get a close up view for finer adjustment can use the scaling buttons in the view window. Alternatively toggle
the full screen check box in the solver options area. However the second option may not refresh the view when
making adjustments in the next step.

Now select "Next" on original ekos screen which will show refresh option, enable 2 second refresh of full screen.

Finally some clear skies again. Played around with it some more, no way I can get it to work. But cycling the images in the focus module does works like it should.

Does refresh work if you set it to use your ASI2120MC camera?

As much as I hate to admit it this might just be an operator error :(
I have tried again now and is did work. I think what I did not do right before was actually pressing the refresh button. For some reason I thought that was to change the refresh rate, not start the process...

Sorry for causing this confusion.
